Summary: I'll keep this very short. They are very smooth sounding. Treble toned down so not so good for rock but have a magic about them that makes them better than mark 2. I use them with a '89/'90 Marantz PM50 integrated. Very powerful amp with a great headphone out. Don't need to go past ten o;clock even with these 600 ohm babies. Anyway, great vintage headphones that are well made and worth a go at the right price.
Excerpt: "...but is worth it, the AKG K 141 MK 2 is amazingly comfortable and has never given me soar ears. Friends also use this set to create and mix music, they say this head set is one of the few that actually give them perfect sound quality. I also experience almost no sound externally when having put on the headphones. these headphones are great for gamers and music listeners as they are very sound sensitive and provide good bass, i would recommend this ...
Summary: These are very impressive cans out the box. Nicely balanced with a neutral to very slightly warmer sound. Best I can describe it is rich and full bodied. They have so far sounded great with anything I play, not like the Grado SR80 which can sound fatiguing with some or even any music after a while. These are not as 'in your face' as the Grado SR80.
Summary: Having got them out of the box I first compared them on my mobile phone with the AKG K420's i have and at first was disappointed as they were much quieter than the 420's even with a headphone amp. I then tried them in my laptop with the headphone amp and they were pretty good. After 15 minutes or so I kept noticing that I had to reduce the volume on the laptop as they were getting louder. I assume that these need to "run in".
Summary: Just received my headphones in very short time (3 days from placing order) Sound quality is superb, I already had the old version of this new model for fifteen years but they were not suitable for the new LCD TV I have just bought because of the high impedance (600 Ohms). These are almost identical in appearance (silver not gold finish)and same great sound. Three metre lead is good for sitting in my armchair in comfort watching my DVD's.
Summary: Bereits Anfang der 80er Jahre kaufte ich mir den AKG K141, damals noch ohne den Zusatz "Studio". Bis heute wird dieser Kopfhörer in vielen Tonstudios dieser Welt benutzt. Mein alter hat bis Ende letzten Jahres treu seinen Dienst verrichtet, bis er einem Wasserschaden zum Opfer fiel. Es musste also ein würdiger Nachfolger her, Ich fand ihn im AKG 141 Studio. In dieser Preislage gibt es bis heute nichts besseres.
Summary: Перешел на эти уши с AKG 172HD. Все на высоте, но есть одно но – слишком реалистично, причем настолько, что даже непривычно. Советую послушать в них тему «Sundriver - Feel (Original Mix)», если голова не взорветься – это не ваши уши, если взорветься и улетит в космос – смело берите. Используете осторожно - вызывают привыкание – после недели использования вы больше не сможете вернуться на другие уши :)) Синхайзеры и аудиотехника и рядом не стоят.
